The TRIBBLE homeworld has many large sprawling savannahs in its temperate zones. The savannahs are home to vast herds of beasts like buffalo and elk. These herds feed many different kinds of predators, including creatures that resemble cheetahs, wolves, hyenas, and jackals. Because of the great number of predators, MEADOW TRIBBLES rarely live long enough even to find a burrow, so they must breed as rapidly as possible to ensure the survival of their species. MEADOW TRIBBLES will eat grass, grain, leaves, flowers, and even the partly-digested grass found in the dung of the larger herbivores. They are the fastest breeding of all TRIBBLES. Because of the high number of predators, the lifespan of a MEADOW TRIBBLE is usually less than a week.
After much patience and training, and many long hours, some of our TRIBBLES now respond with a soft, warm cooing sound. But be careful! If you continue to pet them, they’ll emit their traditional annoyed chirp.
